In spite of the showers, a fine day of Athletics in Cushinstown

Special thanks to All the volunteers in Cushinstown AC who helped run a great afternoon of Athletics. The standard was very high with many clubs from outside Meath competing. I haven't a full tally of the results but what made the day special was the whole social side of it for our young athletes. They were with their friends, enjoying the chat as they waited for their turn to jump, throw or run.
There was some fine competing by our athletes with Deirdre Healy winning the Ladies 1500m while finishing 3rd overall in a mixed race. Conor Duncan ran well finishing in 2nd in the senior men's 1500m. Abraham Zaidan and Peter Doherty finished a great 2nd and 3rd in the senior men's 100m. Caroline VanDongeren a late entry into the senior ladies 100m ran well to finish 2nd. Marcus Zaidan ran very well to come second in the U9 80m he also came 3rd in the ball throw. Fionn Drummond threw well to come 2nd in the U9 ball throw. Tom Kilgannon won the U10 80m sprint with a typically strong run. Tom Kilgannon, Aoife Rutherford, Sorcha BroeBrady, and Aimee Doherty came 2nd in the Boys U10 4x100m relay. The relays were held at the end of the day when most of the competitors had left and it might be an idea to have the relays earlier prior to the field events to maximise attendance at this team event.
We had a great number of athletes making it to the final stages of the sprints and as I get their results back I'll post them up here. Please email me the results of your young athlete if they are missing from the post.
Thanks to all the parents who braved the weather and brought the team to Cushinstown, and to our athletes see you all at training on Tuesday and once again on Wed evening in Navan for day 3 of the Interclub League.
Proud Silver Medal Winners
